About Matthew

Business Lawyer / Advisor

A serial entrepreneur dedicated to supporting serial entrepreneurs, at any stage of their business life cycle.

Matthew Murillo – My Story

Believe it or not, I’m not a SoCal native – many people are surprised to hear that.  I’m a good ol’ country boy at heart.  I grew up in a small community in Butte County and because of that, I probably understand the plight of entrepreneurs better than most other business attorneys.


It’s what I was raised in.  My parents have been self-employed ever since I can remember. Same for an older brother. It’s not just in our blood – it’s our way of life.  I’m all too familiar with the stresses and strains that can put on a family and seek to help families stay out of trouble and remain compliant…while setting them up for short- and long-term success and succession.

In addition to his duties within the Griffin family, I also maintain an active real estate broker license managing a stand-alone real estate practice, offer strategic business consulting services via another stand-alone business venture, founded and maintain a 501(c)(3) dedicated to startup entrepreneurs and am settling into multiple eCommerce ventures that are all my own PERSONAL business ventures.

You really CAN’T get this kind of first-hand experience from most business lawyers out there.

Not only do I spend my days speaking with entrepreneurs about what keeps them up at night, their goals and strategies; but I help them formulate creative ways to acheive what they trully want to acheive.

Who better to understand the frustrations, concerns and daily challenges entrepreneurs face, than someone who’s already dealt with them?

…At first it seemed very overwhelming, but Matt explained every step and made it easy…

Why Work With Us?

Few business attorneys out there understand you better.  Many attorneys you’ll come across, fall into one of two categories.  They either:

1) Work for someone; or
2) Have a single business – their law practice.

While those lawyers may be great for business, they’re typically not great for entrepreneurs.  That’s not the case here!  As an entrepreneur, Matthew understands the complexity that having multiple businesses brings into daily life, the impact on your loved ones, and the importance of having each venture “play nice” with others.  Few attorneys can say they truly live the lifestyle required of an entrepreneur.
